Well, I was very excited about finding the job I had. Come to find out, the things I was telling people about the products we were selling were lies.
I am not comfortable lying to people to sell a product. I really don't like being lied to and then finding out later most everything I was told to do was BS.
On top of the lying, they didn't tell me I had to pay 3 % of every check I would take plus a check fee on top of that. Why in the hell do I HAVE TO PAY these fees??!!!
Plus, when I was out in Mesquite (suburb of Dallas) a guy called the cops on us and the cops came and told us we needed permits to sell things in that city. They ran our DL's and took 2 of the guys to jail cause they had warrents. They told us if they caught us in Mesquite again, they would take us to jail and fine us unless we had permits. When I asked about the permit situation, my boss just told me if we talk really nice to the cops, they won't take us to jail. What kind of answer is that????!!! And if they fined me ($) do I have to pay for it?? Or would they tell me I didn't talk nice enough and that's why they took me to jail and fined me???
I am not going to jail for anyone, and I shouldn't have to pay for my own permit if I am selling YOUR stuff!!
Plus, I was using my own car and my own gas $ to go out and sell their products!! Since I have a truck, I don't have enough room to keep all the products inside the cab, so if someone decided to help themselves to the stuff in the back, guess who is responsible for it?? You guessed it....ME!!
So, everytime I saw a cop yesterday I was paranoid of going to jail. I kid you not, we saw at least 8 different cops in 2 cities. I saw it as an omen.
I wanted a job that I could work 8hrs and go home. Well, I have been getting up at 4:30-5:30 am every morning and not getting home till 8pm. That's a LONG day. I never have any time to spend with my boyfriend or to do any cleaning around the house. The same dishes have been in the sink for a week!! I only have about 2hrs when I get home to clean, eat, unwind, etc. Plus, they want us to go out on Saturday too. When I agreed to take the job, I said I could spare a Sat here and there, but not a 14hr day!!! That is taking away from time I have with my son, which is only about 2 days a week!!
And since I work so late and get up so early, I have no time to look for anything else. (job)
So, I am up early, I get to the office at 6:15-7:15am and don't get out to do any selling untill 10am. The rest of the time they are going over their systems of selling and getting you motivated for about 2-3 hrs. Then when you get out to sell stuff, you are walking around for 8hrs (no 1hr lunches) carrying a bag full of products (not light). So, when I am done at the end of the day, my feet hurt, my back hurts, and if I don't sell enough I go home with about $10 like yesterday. That barely covers gas and lunch.
So, I wasn't told all this in the beginning, and I have been decieved. I hate telling people something and come to find out I was lying to them without even knowing it. Most of the products they sell they make themselves, but tell people they will be coming out in stores and it is a promotion we are doing. This come to find out is total BS. I was very mad when one of the guys told me they would never be in the stores. I honestly thought that's what would happen!!
So, I am pissed off and I quit today. I didn't call in or anything, and Alex (my boyfriend) seemed ok with it-- he smiled at me when he was leaving for work this morning. He kissed me on my forehead and told me to get some rest. Boy did I need the rest!!
I will call my boss later, after she is out of the office so I don't get the "candy coated" answer since she won't be in frount of anyone. I will explain that it is taking too much of my time and I have a life outside of work that I haven't been able to enjoy anymore cause the job it VERY time consuming. They have a security account and I have about $32 in it, so I will arrange to go and get that $ so I can give it to my x for my son until I find another job.
I guess I wouldn't have been so upset, but I was lied to and it made ME lie to people. I hate that!!
Would you have done the same???? Let me know what you think, I think I did the right thing by quitting.
You all's input would be welcomed!!!!!!!!
